If you are looking to expand your knowledge, gain an edge in the employment market, or pursue an entirely new career direction, then postgraduate study could be the answer.

Undertaking a postgraduate degree enables you to build on your professional experience. It can help you keep up-to-date with industry developments, or gain fresh skills and knowledge in exciting new areas.

Many courses are modular in nature, with completion of the entry-level (Graduate Certificate) and intermediate (Graduate Diploma) programs providing a stand-alone qualification as well as advancing you towards the Master level qualifications if you choose to progress your studies further.

All of our postgraduate courses are available full-time or part-time, with some being delivered in evening classes or fully online, enabling you to balance your study with work or other commitments.

MBA and Management Programs

Curtin Business School offers a suite of distinctive MBA programs, each designed for students in different stages of their career.

More than three years of managerial/supervisory experience

If you have more than three years of managerial/supervisory experience, consider our EFMD accredited Master of Business Administration, which is designed for experienced mid-career professionals looking to move to the next stage in their career.

We also offer the two-year MBA (Advanced) as an extension of our reputable flagship MBA program.

MBA entry pathway
Prospective MBA applicants who do not have a bachelor degree, but possess a significant amount of work experience at a recognisable level of managerial/supervisory responsibility should consider applying for the Graduate Certificate in Business program.

This course can serve as your entry pathway to the MBAMBA (Advanced) or Graduate Diploma in Business, or be completed as a standalone qualification.

Less than three years of managerial/supervisory experience

Graduates with less than three years of work experience should consider our two-year Master of Management. This program will build on your undergraduate degree and is designed for emerging business leaders who want to succeed in the global business environment.

Higher degree by research

A higher degree by research (HDR) is a program at Master’s or Doctoral level in which at least two-thirds of the study program involves research. Choosing to undertake research can help you to build up knowledge in your profession and provide important contributions to both industry and community.
